we'll call the applicants in the order of the agenda. lily wong. >> hello, my name is lily wong. i'm one of the applicants. good afternoon supervisors and thank you for considering my application for the advisory committee. just a little brief summary about myself. i grew up in san francisco. my family came here in 1987. i have been here ever since. my family has worked hard to live here and my interest is in this. i have worked to improve the living conditions for city san franciscans. i worked at community educational services for the mayor's education employment program for low income youth in san francisco. i currently work at coleman advocates and where they have a unique perspective on adult work force. i get to provide work force direct services and i get to advocate on a stronger policy or a more citywide level. i try to identify gaps in the neighborhood and try to see what we can do to support san
franciscans. i know that my experience and current work more than qualifies me for the wic act and i appreciate your time and prepared to answer any questions you might have. >>supervisor norman yee: any questions? okay. i have a quick question. work force investment for our board is many members on the board of supervisors is an important issue. what voice do you think you will be bringing to the table? >> you mean like in terms of population or? >>supervisor norman yee: you can answer anyway you like. >> okay, i think for me i worked in immigrant and low income families. that's kind of my background and both my own living experiences as well as the jobs that i have held in the past and i currently
do hold. i think that in terms of disadvantaged individuals in san francisco, those would probably be the strongest areas that i know. >>supervisor norman yee: okay. thank you very much. >> thank you. >>supervisor norman yee: next applicant is james fountain. >> my name is james fountain. i work with the employment youth services. i have been there for over 6 years now. prior to that i was at ll hutch and worked with people coming out of prisons. i have worked with the professionals and do a lot of national advocacy for what's happening and i want to get involved at the local level and i'm
involved with the california workers association and work force development and moving on their education as well. >>supervisor norman yee: okay. any questions? seeing none, thank you. next applicant is winnie yu. >> good afternoon, board of supervisors, thank you for the opportunity to speak before you and your consideration for the work force committee advisory committee. i have been working as a center manager for one of the neighborhood access points formally one stop career centers? san francisco since july 2010 and have seen thousands of visitors looking for work. our approach has been looking at the strengths of many of the job seekers to marketing skills to employers and looking for opportunities to do the right matching. so my voice that i would lend is my experience in operating a
one stop center, now neighborhood access points in san francisco but also working with job seekers who really have skills gaps in their resumes and being able to work with them and market their skills and strengths to employers. there is a low unemployment rate according to the edd report, 4.6 percent. however the remaining are the hardest to employee. we would need to really utilize strategies and skill building and training to ensure that they are not left out while the rest of the more higher skilled workers are now employed. i would appreciate the opportunity to serve again and utilize experience that i have experienced in the past with more innovative job seekers to come to the work force and ensure there is no gaps or opportunities lost to ensure all workers have an opportunity. thank you for
your consideration. >>supervisor norman yee: thank you, supervisor campos? >>supervisor david campos: yes. thank you very much. just a quick question, we have more applicants that we have seats. i'm just wondering and i'm going to ask this of anyone seeking reappointment. can you tell us about your attendance to meetings. did you miss any meetings? >> yes, i have attended most of the meetings other than the family emergencies and/or situations or if i was ill i was not able to attend. >>supervisor david campos: thank you. >>supervisor norman yee: next applicant is dion jay brookter. i believe you are speaking? okay. state your name. >> good afternoon supervisors, jamal walters. i'm here to speak on behalf of mr. dion
jay brookter. he was out on a visit with the san francisco unified school district in clovis california. he's out there on assignment right now working of course for our children. but mr. brookter was appointed by this committee last year and is really looking forward for the opportunity to serving the city and residents very well. he's been the deputy director for community developers over the years where we provide education services to one of san francisco's most disenfranchised population. mr. brookter is very innovative and has high level planning and education experience. he has a tremendous amount of work ethic and ready to work diligently and ready to provide some real thoughtful
input to provide services to deal with the gaps in the work force system that we have here in san francisco. he's already involved in many high level conversations about bringing more seamless services to the work force services in san francisco and how to work to provide better opportunities for disfranchised population. he's already been appointed and he would like the opportunity to complete a full term. you the. >>supervisor norman yee: thank you. supervisor campos. >>supervisor david campos: do you know what his attendance was. >> he did not have an opportunity to go to a meeting. he was appointed late. >>supervisor norman yee: i guess he had a lot of impact so far.
is there any additional public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. okay. my colleagues on the committee, we have four great candidates for three seats. any thoughts. supervisor tang? >>supervisor katy tang: yes, i after looking at some of the materials i would be interested in allowing applicants winnie yu and dion jay brookter to continuing the term especially mr. brookter to fulfill a full term and i'm familiar with ms. yu's work in the community. i know we have three seats and four applicants. i at least want to move those two forward and would love to hear from the community members on the third applicant. >>supervisor norman yee: supervisor campos? >>supervisor david campos: thank you mr. chair and supervisor tang. i will support that motion. i think that it's good to have continuity and in the case of
mr. brookter, he was just appointed. i think that we need to make sure that he has an opportunity to serve out a full term. i don't know, i think it's a really hard choice because i think that every one of the two remaining applicants is really strong and i was very impressed with the presentation. i have to say that it's one of those things whenever you have more applicants than you have vacancies that you ask which ever one doesn't get the appointment today or the recommendation today to please continue to be involved because the thing with these bodies you have a lot of busy people and schedules change and personal circumstances change so vacancies come up. i see it as more of a long term. my hope is that at some point
both ms. wong and mr. fountain would be able to serve on this body. that said, based on the presentation today and the experience, i'm inclined to move forward mr. fountain at this point, but again that's not anything against ms. wong because i think she has a great deal of experience and a lot of passion and expertise that she brings. >>supervisor norman yee: thank you. i also would support your motion to reappoint mr. book ter and ms. yu. it boils down to two candidates. i have had the opportunity to listen to
ms. wong another time when she applied. and i also know of her work on the -- the presentation from both of you was very good. the background was very good. at this point i also received quite a few e-mails to support ms. wong. i'm going to and there is no insult to the one i'm not favoring, but i would say i favor ms. wong. >>supervisor katy tang: i would say i have to second supervisor yee's choice here. i think both candidates have a great background that they are presenting to us. for me i like and identify with bringing the immigrant community voice to the table as well as someone who again
can help serve as well the monolingual; community. with that, i would move to also support ms. lily wong. >>supervisor norman yee: so the motion is to, let me be specific. the motion would be to nominate lily wong to seat one, winnie yu to seat 2, dion jay book ter to seat 4. supervisor campos? >>supervisor david campos: thank you. i don't think you can go wrong with either choice. i would be happy to support ms. wong as well. i want to do it without objection. >>supervisor norman yee: okay. the motion is passed. mr. fountain, please, we mean it, reapply. >> i'm here all the time.
don't worry. >>supervisor norman yee: thank you very much. okay, let's move on to item no. 5. the clerk: item 5: agenda[appointments, sro task force]1400255.hearing to consider appointing seven members, terms ending december 31, 2015, to the sro task force. clerk of the boarddvacant seat 1, succeeding charles siron, term expired, must be an sro tenant, for the unexpired portion of a three-year term ending december 31, 2015.vacant seat 2, succeeding suresh patel, term expired, must be a private sro owner/operator, for the unexpired portion of a three-year term ending december 31, 2015. vacant seat 4, succeeding seth katzman, resigned, must be a non-profit sro operator/owner, for the unexpired portion of a three-year term ending december 31, 2015. vacant seat 5, succeeding joshua vining, term expired, must be a representative of the mission sro collaborative, for the unexpired portion of a three-year term ending december 31, 2015.vacant seat 7, succeeding angela chu, term expired, must be a representative of the chinatown sro collaborative, for the unexpired portion of a three-year term ending december 31, 2015. vacant seat 8, succeeding joyce lam, resigned, must be a representative of the families sro collaborative, for the unexpired portion of a three-year term ending december 31, 2105.vacant seat 9, succeeding victor nelson, term expired, must be a sro tenant, for the unexpired portion of a three-year term ending december 31, 2015.1/3/14; received and assigned to the rules committee. the clerk: sf 51234 >>supervisor norman yee: okay. now we'll hear from the applicants in the order listed. first person is dan jordan. >> good afternoon supervisors, my name is dan jordan, a resident here in an sro hotel in san francisco and i work as a collaborative as a housing
